gigabyte z77 ud3h error 51

so this was my first pc build and upon start up with 2 x 4 ram (g.skill ripjaws, 1600 mhz) i receive the debug code 51, which said in the manual "memory initialization error occurs". However, when i removed one of the sticks it worked fine

so i'm wondering is this a motherboard thing or a ram thing?
like is there a way i can tell without opening back up the case?

i know its fairly easy to distinguished the problem but i would like a little more insight if possible, ty

    It may be a bad stick of ram, bud. Try booting the system with the other stick that was giving you problems only.
